10:02 am
function leading to allegations of conflict and obstruction from within the f.b.i. and justice department. wickileaks has continued to post embarrassing e-mails from the account of john podesta. considering the tenor of campaign 2016 one could conjure up many post-election combinations. will the loser blame fraud or russia? we will leave the predictions up to others. we begin by investigating the big money tfi pulling strings behind the scenes in u.s. presidential campaign politics. >> clinton is winning support from some of the wealthiest despite her position on taxes. >> clinton bragged about her great relationship with the financial industry. that is where she gets all the money. >> it is pretty much the wild west when it comes to outside spending. investigative investigative traction money for response politics and takes us through the murky world of outside
10:03 am
and super p.a.c.s that shield donor identity. if you are an average citizen one way it give is directly but that money is very limited. there are caps on what you can give. there's also what we call outside spending groups where you have heard the term super p.a.c. they can spend any amount of money and they can take in any amount of magic. people can give millions of dollars to super p.a.c. >> how can we trust the clintons to fight for us is it >> that is money that fueled negative ads organized opposition research news media outreach. when i see the hate donald trump has brought it terrifies me. >> i would like to punch him in the face. >> i don't know what i said. i don't remember. >> in florida they say she will
10:04 am
>> there's a super p.a.c. called priorities u.s.a. action that is the super p.a.c. becoming hillary clinton. not that others are not helping but this one is totally devoted to getting her elected. it has raised a lot of money. donald trump has a couple of super p.a.c.s backing him. one problem has been it has never been clear which is the favored super p.a.c. so donors kind of don't know w to. >> the largest pro clinton super p.a.c. has raised nearly $176 million compared to the largest pro trump super p.a.c. which raised about $16 million. >> when we look at outside spending where is his support coming and who is giving to his outside spending groups? >> his outside spending donors look a lot like the campaign donors. retired people. real estate, miscellaneous
10:05 am
favor clinton giving her 100 times as much outside money more than $78 million compared to trump's less than $1 million. so, wall street really comes out on top. besides wall street you have entertainment. people from hollywood and people from lawyers. >> who are the personalities with the deepest pockets? hedge fund billionaires. >> for clinton when you tractor in the super p.a.c. her top donald susman, james simons with a message fund and george soros. last time we looked there were no hedge fund billionaires supporting donald trump. now that he is the last man standing in the republican party that has changed. a lot of the hedge fund billionaires have not come aboard with trump but robert
10:06 am
ted cruz until he decided to come over to trump. >> donald trump's biggest donors have been robert mercer who is actually with the same hedge fund that james bynums. jeff palmer a real estate developer in california. >> add it up and clinton has far and away more big donor support. $20 million from palumbo partners, $14 from simons. more than $12 million from another group and 10 million each from soros and saban capital. 20 donors have given her more than $2 million each. he has only three donors in that category. 15 by 5 million from renaissance's robert mercer, $2 from g.h. partly sunny and associates and $2 million from
10:07 am
home depot's co-founder. within reason trump's numbers are not bigger is some conservative billionaires are on the sidelines. >> if some big republican donors are not contributing to donald trump, are they going anywhere or just saving their money? >> i think they are just saving their money. some have outright said they are not going to play very much this year. the koch brothers and their network is really staying out of the presidenti david and charles koch are industrialists from the midwest and they have been active in republican politics for a very long time. and they tend to be more mainstream republican than pro trump who is very much not. >> they are not helping him? >> they are not helping. >> by retirees are helping both
10:08 am
and trump's top group at $19.5 million. >> then she relies on lawyers, people from the education field, people who work for universities who tend to generally be democratic. for donald trump's campaign he relies more on businesses that we call miscellaneous, chemical industry, restaurants, ones that don't fit other real estate. >> trump's donor by far is trump. >> why aren't you putting money into your own campaign? just curious. >> we will get on to one more question. >> trump has put more than $66 million of his own money into his campaign. >> i'm putting up $100 million. it will be more than that. >> if he is raising less than other republican candidates but at this point fairly neck and
10:09 am
candidate what does it tell us? >> it tells us that he's gotten a lot of free publicity among other things. >> mr. trump -- >> he said that he doesn't need as much because he doesn't need to buy as much. the media just covers trump so much that he's everywhere you look and there is some truth to that. he may not need as much. >> the totals to date clinton supporters have given more than twice as much $687 million to million. and both candidates can brag of getting a lot of that money from the coveted small donor. >> i'm proud of the fact that we have more than 750,000 donors and the vast majority give small contributions. >> she is raised about 19% from small donors. a greater amount but smaller share than donald trump.
10:10 am
funding is about 43%. >> i'm getting tremendous amounts like $61 apiece no republican has ever done that. >> how do the small donors he has compare to other candidates in the past whether bernie sanders or previous campaigns? >> bernie sanders got a lot of funding from small donors. his number was higher than trump alleys. obama was always successful with smallon it shows in mart some of the larger donors may be staying away from this candidate but he is hitting a chord with some real folks. >> how much of the candidates spending to get elected overall? that is calculated together aware closing in on $2 billion october 31 significantly more than what obama and romney spent
10:11 am
billion. reports on hillary clinton and donald trump and what may be the
10:12 am
>> campaign 2016 will be noted as one of most bit are in history the attacks have been deeply personal and will continue until the last hours of campaign. we thought on the eve of election we would take a different approach and offer the last good word on each decade from those who know them.
10:13 am
feel in the interest of pure onlity we flipped this quarter and trump one the toss. here is scott thuman. >> donald trump, his name is all over the manhattan sky line. >> he's been a success in everything he's done and everything he ever touched turned to tkpeld. >> his son eric is busy promoting both the family business and his father's political image. >> he loves bricks and mortar and concrete and he is a great creator. he's great leader. >> and a father who from eric's earliest memories instilled a drive to follow a certain path even if he was 250 young. >> every day i would go into his room before i left for school he would look at me at six and say eric drinking no drugs no smoking and you better get good grades was six and didn't know what drinking, drugs or smoking was.
10:14 am
his book the truth about trump. >> he believes that he can freelance at any moment so he is not strategic in that way. he is more about a confidence in his own talent and in the moment he will make the right choice and that if that doesn't work he has another moment and he can make another choice. >> three words that come up you hear everything from this is again ruthless to savvy to lucky. do they all apply? >> maybe they all apply. luck is a factor of the world. i think that the thing i would say would be work ethic, dedication. and striving to reach a goal and never stopping, never turning back. >> dantonio agrees. trump has no rearview mirror. >> if he wakes up on the day after the election and he's president, he's not going to be
10:15 am
self-doubt. he will not be the guy who says what will we do now. he will proceed with great confidence, surround himself with men primarily. maybe a woman or two whom he trusts and imagines to be the best and he will proceed with great confidence. >> confidence ingrained in trump at an early age. >> the message that the trump boys got from fred trump sr. was you are killer an king. >> do you think he cares too much about legacy? >> no -- well, legacy is a big thing. legacy is a big thing. he built an unbelievable brand. he is the smartest guy i know. he is incredible. toughest negotiator and incredible spine and you need that feel >> there may be a donald trump we have not seen one other than the tough talking caustic candidate.
10:16 am
that surprised me and it was a kind of sadness. he really doesn't have a sense that he's gotten what he feels he difference. and this is probably the reason for his constant striving and for the sense that there's never enough for him. >> in the end the quality that has brought candidate trump to the eve of the election might well be his secret weapon. >> he's done it by being human, by speaking out against politicians but seeking as a civilian, as a person. >> eric trump summed it up by saying plenty of team have underestimated his father over the years and have been wrong more often than not and lost a lot of money doing that. >> thanks, scott. next hillary clinton as seen only in the eyes of friends that
